Lucking’s friend, Stephen Macht, took to Facebook to share an obituary written by Lucking’s wife, Sigrid in which she explained that Lucking was “an elegant man.”

“Although William often played toughs and strongmen, in his actual life he was an elegant man with a brilliant intellect who loved to argue about politics and current affairs, discuss philosophy and physics, and assert fine-pointed opinions about art and poetry,” the post read. “He was a giant of a man with the soul of a poet, one who “contained…a tension of sorts within his being…like a boulder teetering on a hill…or a balloon expanding towards its extreme,” as one friend put it.”
